Are you into share market trading? Do you want 3 tips to carry out successful share market trading? So you have to pay only if the tips provided are successful and you make a profit out of it. Do you receive such phone calls? So is it beneficial to trade based on such tips or is this a planned trap? Let us find that out.
We hope to de-mask the truth behind such phone calls with this blog post. So you might receive similar such calls stating different locations saying that “I am speaking from XYZ Advisory company. Asking whether you trade in the share market? If you answer saying yes, then they will provide you tips for successful trading. That person will also insist that you will have to pay them only if their tips prove to be profitable. Then, if you agree, they would insist to begin the trail.”
After this call, you might feel that this is a good offer. Also, I have to pay only if I incur a profit. Why not take this trail and see? If you have such a thought then you probably are making a serious mistake. You are opting for a very wrong trial. Here, you might probably end up making a fool of yourself and find yourself in a dreadful trap.
How? Let us see. These people who call you to offer such tips, they follow a certain strategy. So the strategy is that out of all the people they call they divide those people into 2 groups and fool them. You might want to know, how do they do this?
Well, consider a company named XYZ limited. Suppose the fake Advisory calls roughly about 100 people a day. Now, what they will do is, they will tell 50% of the people that the price of the share of XYZ company is going to increase, so you should buy the share and they will tell the remaining 50% of the people that the price of the share of XYZ company is going to decrease, so you should sell that share. Being a share, there will be some movement in it, either the price will go up or it will fall down.
Consider, the share sees an uptrend during the day and so the share price goes up. So the people whom the advisory had asked to sell the share, they won’t call them again as their prediction went wrong. And to whom they had advised buying the share, the advisory will call them and ask them, “How did you like the tip? We had told you that the price of the share will go up.” So you will nod your head in agreement and say, “Yes the tip worked.” Further, they will insist to provide you with one more tip. They will provide you with another tip, the next day.
What next? They’ll repeat the same game plan again! They will call up the 50 people, whom they had suggested that the price of the share will go up and again divide those 50 into two groups of 25 each.
Now, the advisory will advise a new share namely, ABC limited. They will tell the 25 people that the price of the share of ABC limited company is going to increase, so you should buy the share and they will tell the remaining 25 people that the price of the share of the ABC limited company is going to decrease, so you should sell that share. Being a share, there will be some movement in it.
Consider if the share price of ABC limited goes up during the day then the advisory people will not call those 25 people whom they had recommended selling the share. They would instead call the ones to whom they had suggested buying the share. And then they would ask those 25 people, how did they like the tip?
So the ones who had received the tip will feel that such tips really worked as the advisory had suggested the share XYZ yesterday and the tip proved useful. Similarly, they suggested buying ABC limited today and that too worked. The advisory people would now say that not 1 nor 2, we’ll be giving you a 3rd tip tomorrow
Now, its day 3 and the game plan is still the same. The advisory will call those 25 people from yesterday, whom they had suggested buying ABC limited since their tip worked as the price of the share had increased. They will again divide those 25 people into 2 groups and again apply the same strategy.
The advisory will now advise a new share namely, PQR limited. They will tell 50% of the people that the price of the share of PQR limited company is going to increase, so you should buy the share and they will tell the remaining 50% people that the price of the share of PQR limited company is going to decrease, so you should sell that share.
Consider that the price of PQR limited falls considerably during the day. Here, the advisory people will not call those people whom they had recommended buying the share. They would instead call the ones to whom they had suggested selling the share. And then they would ask those people, how did they like the tip?
You would end up thinking the Advisory is amazing. Everything worked out as they had mentioned in the tip like they said the price of XYZ limited would go up, it did; then they said the price of ABC limited would go up as well, it did; next, they recommended that the price of PQR will fall & it did. So you’ll feel as though it’s some miracle and the advisory is some form of God which knows it all.
Out of curiosity, you’ll ask the advisory, “How your tips are so amazing and accurate? Where do you’ll get such tips from? They would reply saying, “That’s a secret. We get them from a secret source.”
Then you would ask them for the next tip, the fourth tip. And they would reply saying, “We’ll provide the tip but this time it won’t be free anymore. You’ll have to pay us a certain fee for that or you’ll have to share half of the profit that you’ll incur from using our tip.” You would feel that both options are fine. Why not join hands with them and make a good profit?
What next? Nothing new, they would play the same game plan and apply the same strategy of divide and rule and make everybody a fool! Hence, Aryaamoney advises you, ‘Not to fall prey to such tips.” Such tips can prove to be very harmful.
